Description Facundo Curti 2015-06-02 05:07:33 UTC
I have a new keyboard, it works FINE in winbugs, but in linux, the keys shift, windows, ctrl and alt have the same keycode.

Using xev, it says keycode 50.

Using showkey on tty, it says code 42

Finally, using showkey --scancodes , it says 0x2a when pressing, 0xaa when release.


It happens on any of the four keys above montioned.

The keyboard is a noga NKB-710.

dmesg no shows any error:

Fixed with this: (A custom driver)
http://swoogan.blogspot.com.ar/2014/09/azio-l70-keyboard-linux-driver.html

Using these, the special keys like "home", "calc", "next song", "play", etc... Does not works. xev even not receive any signal... (on my keyboard, a nkb-710)
Anyway, it fix the bigger problem... Now I can use it :P (mostly jaja).

I think someone could make a official driver for this, unfortunately, exceeds my knowledge (I just stole someon else's work).

Thank you! Bye!

Is wrote down this bug? The status didn't change since it was published.
Or maybe it was repeated? (Even when I searched before publishing)

Bye! ;)
